Rebecca Randolph, a senior at Colusa High School, is one of more than 800 high school cheerleaders from across the U.S. who will be representing Varsity Spirit in the world famous London New Year’s Day Parade, on Jan. 1, 2020.
Randolph and the others invited to perform in the London celebration are part of the All-American program, selected from Universal Cheerleaders Association and National Cheerleaders Association at summer camps across the country. She will leave Thursday and return back home Jan. 2
Randolph has been part of the CHS cheer squad for four years, serving as captain two of those four years. Along with her dedication to waking up at 5 AM for cheer practice each day, she keeps very busy as Senior Class President, participates on the track team, is a member of ESA and ASB. She was also football homecoming queen for the 2019 season.
Outside of her already active school schedule, Randolph volunteers and teaches preschool children and is a Wyldlife leader at her local church. During the past four years at Colusa High School, Randolph has been outstanding in leadership, academics and athletics. She has been accepted to the University of Nevada, at Reno, and is waiting to hear from Boise State, where she hopes to cheer while majoring in nursing.
All-Americans are chosen based on superior athletic and leadership skills. Only the top 12 percent of athletes who attend camp earn the chance to perform in the holiday spectacular.
“The All-American program is celebrating its 32nd year in 2019, and our talented cheerleaders really enjoy the opportunity to show their skills to a very enthusiastic international audience,” says Mike Fultz, international event coordinator for Varsity Spirit.■
